Easy & Simple 1/6th scale Z.E.R.T. Advanced Machine Gunner Juggernaut "SULLY" figure

The M240, officially Machine Gun, 7.62mm, M240, is the US military designation for the FN MAG (Mitrailleuse d'Appui Général, meaning general-purpose machine gun), a family of belt-fed, gas-operated medium machine guns firing the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge. The M240 has been used by the United States Armed Forces since the late-1970s. It is used extensively by infantry, most often rifle companies as well as ground vehicles, watercraft and aircraft. Despite being heavier than comparable weapons, it is highly regarded for reliability and its standardization among NATO members is a major advantage. All variants are fed from disintegrating belts, and are capable of firing most types of 7.62 mm (.308) NATO ammunition.

The M240L (or M240B Weight Reduction Program, formerly the M240E6), reduces the weight of the existing M240B by 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg). To achieve 18% weight savings the M240L incorporates titanium construction and alternative manufacturing methods for fabricating major components. The resulting improvements reduced the soldier's combat load while allowing easier handling and movement of the weapon.


Easy & Simple 1/6th scale Z.E.R.T. Advanced Machine Gunner Juggernaut "Sully" 12-inch figure will come with E&S Body with Sully Headsculpt, Typhoon Camo Pattern Frog Shirt (Black Shirt, Black Multicam Forearm Guards), Typhoon Camo Pattern Reinforced Pants (Black Reinforcement Builtin Knee Pads), Cobra Belt, FAST Helmet with V-Lite x2 & NVG Mount, Black Multicam Cloth Helmet Cover, Helmet Chops & Flip up Visor, "Tacdip" Chewing Tobacco & Holder for Rear of Helmet, Vest (Wolf Grey Vest with Light Grey MOLLE Strapping), Shoulder Pads (Wolf Grey with MOLLE), Neck Guard (Wolf Grey), Groin Plate (Wolf Grey - with "Get Some" written in White), Triple M4 Mag Pouch (Wolf Grey), Medic IFAK Pouch (Wolf Grey), P220 Pistol (Grey Slide, Black Lower) & Tac Light & Pistol Mags x3, Pistol CQC Holster with MOLLE Attachments (Black), Double Pistol Mag Pouch (Wolf Grey), Double Frag Grenade Pouch (Grey w/ Black Buckle), Drop-leg Panel x2 (Grey w/ MOLLE Strapping), SAW Ammo Pouch (Grey W/ Black Buckle), Double M4 Ammo Pouch (Grey W/ Black Buckle - Used to Hold Smoke Grenades - Right Dropleg Side), Frag Grenades x2, Red Incendiary Grenades x3, Smoke Grenades x2, Folding Knife, ZERTified M240L Machine Gun (Grey Receiver, Black Parts), Rifle Sling (Black), Red Dot Optic & Rifle Suppressor, Ammo Backpack MICO Belt Fed, ZERTified Combat Boots, ZERTified Combat Gloves, Sully Approved Patches

Square Enix Play Arts Kai DC Variant Batman: Rogue Series Two-Face Batman action figure

Square Enix does produce some pretty cool figures and I've collected a few over the recent years even though I'm a 1:6 scale 12-inch figure kind of guy. Square Enix Play Arts Kai action figures are about 1:7th scale and they usually stand at around 11 inches tall which allows for some very nice detailing to be put in. The most recent Square Enix Play Arts Kai action figure I got was the DC Variant "Batman: Timeless - Sparta" Batman action figure which was reviewed on my toy blog HERE and HERE.

Square Enix has a new line and it's called “Rogues Gallery Series.” The line of figures will reimagine how Batman would look when combined with his most iconic foes so instead of getting a Batman and villain figure, now you can get two for the price of one. Square Enix has just released official photos and some details for the Two-Face Batman action figure. And this is one character / action figure that is both creepy and awesome at the same time.


Following in the footsteps of the traditional Two-Face character, the figure is half normal and half disfigured. The normal Batman half looks like a traditional Play Arts Kai Batman, while the other half looks like he has been dipped in acid and then mutilated. On the Two-Face side, the jaw, teeth, and eye are exposed, and you can see exposed muscle parts all over his body where the costume has been ripped or dissolved by the acid. Even his armor and cape are warped and mutilated. What a sight!

VTS Toys (VM-018) 1/6th scale The Darkzone Agent Renegade 12-inch figure is a punisher

This is the second Darkzone Agent to be released by VTS Toys. The first figure was previewed on my toy blog HERE. You can compare the two and see how different they are :)

Tom Clancy's The Division is an open world third-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Massive and published by Ubisoft. The Division is set in a dystopian New York City in the aftermath of a smallpox pandemic; the player, who is an agent of the titular Strategic Homeland Division, commonly referred to as simply "The Division", is tasked with helping to rebuild the Division's operations in Manhattan, investigating the nature of the outbreak and combating criminal activity in its wake. The Division is structured with elements of role-playing games, as well as collaborative and player versus player online multiplayer.


VTS Toys (VM-018) 1/6th scale The Darkzone Agent Renegade 12-inch figure will come with: real-like head sculpt, narrow shoulders action body, pair of feet, tactical gloved hands x3. Costume: pro-tec helmet, fire resistant jacket, pyrovatex antistatic coverall, t-shirt (black), BDU belt, pair of boots, ULPC plate carrier. PLUS a ton of other stuff! Talk about being loaded to the hilt.

But the bonus of this 12-inch figure set is the head sculpt. Fans of Netflix Daredevil season 2 will be most pleased :) I know I am!

Presenting the Hot Toys 1:6 scale First Order Stormtrooper FN-2187 before the battle of Jakku

"You have great potential, 2187. You are officer corps material. Your duty is to the First Order above everything. Nothing else comes before that." ― Captain Phasma

FN-2187 was trained since birth to serve the First Order as a stormtrooper. FN-2187, known to his fellow troopers as Eight-Seven, was seen by his comrades and superiors as an ideal First Order stormtrooper, and consistently scored top marks as a cadet.

After Eight-Seven was deployed, he and his fellow troopers were sent on a mission to the desert planet Jakku. The skirmish on Jakku awakened his conscience and drove him down a different path, one that proved both heroic and dangerous. He helped Poe Dameron escape the First Order – picking up the nickname Finn in doing so – and then sought his own freedom alongside Rey and BB-8. And the rest, as they say, is "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" history.


Hot Toys previewed a 1:6 scale Finn (First Order Stormtrooper version) at SDCC2016 with the helmet having the blood from the dying FN-2003 ("Slip"), a distinguishing factor that made FN-2187 (Finn) stand out for the audience to see. The Stormtrooper outfit was also dirtied (weathered) because they had just gone into battle. That figure has yet to be released. This 12-inch figure of First Order Stormtrooper FN-2187 before the battle of Jakku is made possible by putting the head of Hot Toys recently released 1:6 scale Finn figure onto the body of a Hot Toys First Order Stormtrooper, in this case, the First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper from the two-figure pack that is MMS346. Full review of the set will be posted soon :) In the meantime, enjoy these pics.

Check out TITTOYS 1/6th scale Infernal Clockwork Men - Kroenen 12-inch action figure

Important Note: This product is for collectors only, and it is not intended to glorify nor exploit the horrors and atrocities of war or the Nazis.

In the HELLBOY comics created by Mike Mignola, Karl Ruprecht Kroenen was a relatively unremarkable Nazi SS scientist, whose most distinguishing characteristic was that he always wore a gas mask and protective bodysuit, which Mignola attributes to a disfiguring accident of some kind. Director Guillermo del Toro created a significantly expanded biography for the character, to appear as a villain in the 2004 film adaptation.


In the film biography, Kroenen became head of the Thule Society, a group of German aristocrats obsessed with the occult. He helped them to spearhead Project Ragna Rok, engineering the portal generator that would conjure the Scarlet Beast, Hellboy, in October 1944. A masterful fencer, he also became renowned for his swordsmanship and created his own signature swords.

VERY COOL 1/6th scale CrossFire - Lurker of Fox Legend 12-inch female action figure

From Very Cool:
CROSSFIRE, or CF for short, is a FPS game developed by Smilegate Company and run by Tencent in China’s mainland. The game is based on wars between two major international mercenary organizations. Learning from multiple FPS games, it keeps updating new stuff and aims at providing its players with passionate and refreshing fight-experience.

With their clear eyes, neat short hairstyle, graceful postures, voluptuous figures, sharp thoughts and nimble actions, their appearance has again made an impression.

Beauties in this organization are good at different kinds of weapons, and they cooperate well; but in order to avoid hand-on confrontation with their arch rival the Fox Hunters, they usually work separately and only show in group once in a few years at some special time.

Check out "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" costumes display at Star Wars Celebration 2016!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or simply Rogue One, is an upcoming American epic space opera film and the first stand-alone Star Wars Anthology film, and the ninth theatrical feature film in the series. Set in the Star Wars universe shortly before the events of A New Hope, the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire's new weapon, the Death Star. Rogue One will be released on December 16, 2016.

Star Wars Celebration weekend is officially underway at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre! The Rogue One costumes are on display at the massive fan event!


Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. Felicity Jones leads the cast as Jyn Erso alongside Mads Mikklesen who plays her father, Galen Erso. Diego Luna stars as Captain Cassian Andor with Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Blade II) as the blind spiritual warrior Chirrut Imwe, Jiang Wen as his heavily armored best friend Baze Malbus, Alan Tudyk as the droid K-2SO, Riz Ahmed as the Rebel pilot Bodhi Rook, plus Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, a character first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Ben Mendelsohn as the film’s main antagonist, Director Orson Krennic.

Star Wars is also about the troopers, the Imperial soldiers of the Galactic Empire. There are more people dressing up as Stormtroopers and going to conventions and parades as the Imperial Army than as rebel fighters. Why? Because they are many times cooler and look more badass than the rebels. The costumes on display at Star Wars Celebration 2016 include the uniforms and outfits of the Imperial soldiers. One of them is the Imperial Death Trooper. These elite soldiers are encased in specialized stormtrooper armor with a dark, ominous gleam. They serves as bodyguards and enforcers for Director Krennic.

Review II: Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark XLV 33cm Die-cast Figure

Pre-order

continued from previous toy blog post...

LIGHTS on!

This second part action figure review of the recently released Hot Toys MMS300-D11 Movie Masterpiece Series Die-cast "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark XLV 33cm Tall Collectible Figure focuses mainly on the light-up features available with this figure. The User Guide comes in a booklet form with many pages of instructions for things like putting in the batteries as well as how to activate the parts which will make the figure more flexible. Batteries are included but packed separately, a huge step taken by Hot Toys to rectify the mistake they made in the past when they left the batteries inside the figure which resulted in leakage and damages to the electronic components, which led me to post an entry titled "Hot Toy Collecting Tip #1: Remove ALL Batteries!". You can read all about it HERE


Just like Hot Toys announced - Special features on the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark XLV armor include: Metallic red, gold and silver colored painting on armor with weathered effects, LED light-up eyes (white light, battery operated), LED-lighted circle-shaped Arc Reactor with hexagonal-shaped indent on chest (white light, battery operated), One interchangeable battle damaged chest armor, One (1) pair of forearm laser weapons (hidden until deployed), Four (4) pairs of interchangeable palms including: One (1) pair of palms with articulated fingers and light-up repulsors (white light, battery operated), One (1) pair of fists, One (1) pair of battle palms with light-up repulsor (white light, battery operated), One (1) pair of palms with real-like thrust fire effect. Fully deployed air flaps at back of the armor. Articulations on waist armor which allow flexible movement.

Note the parts where it's mentioned LED light-up. These are located at the eyes, circle-shaped Arc Reactor and both palms. A total of 12 batteries are included, three for each LED light-up function. NOTE: There are six bigger sized batteries which are for the eyes and arc reactor. The other six smaller sized batteries are for the palms. The smaller size batteries still work for the eyes and arc reactor but the bigger sized batteries won't fit into the battery compartment which activates the lights for the palms (repulsors). A tiny screwdriver is also included, in case you are not so handy at home and don't own any DIY tools.

“On the fringe, blood and bullets are the rule of law, and if you’re a man with conviction, violence is inevitable.” - John Teller

One of FX’s all-time biggest hits, Sons of Anarchy ran for 7 seasons and 92 episodes, with a following that continues to grow, binge-watching new fan after binge-watching new fan.

Devil Toys "The Battlefield of Darkness Vol 2" Da Rocking Priest is based on real Arthur Hollands

Born 1951 in Osaka, Japan. Arthur Hollands went to USA when he was 20, where he became the national champion at an all American wrestling tournament, won a silver medal at a Pan American championship, and came third at a national Judo championship. Baptized at 23, he became a pastor and returned to Japan in 1982 for evangelism.

Now Devil Toys has taken the image of Arthur Hollands and transformed him into Anthony. H of a fictitious Hong Kong Gangster Group. Devil Toys has also gone the way of DAM Toys by mimicking their style of head sculpt which is a stylized and caricaturish version of a real person. Check out the actual pictures of pastor Arthur Hollands further down in this post, with tattoos and all. Devil Toys even attempted to copy the tattoos on their 12-inch figure body.


Backstory by Devil Toys:
Da Rocking Priest Anthony. H, a Chinese-Japanese half-bleed, is the second member of the Hong Kong Gangster Group "B.O.D.", his philosophy is to use his fist to lead those lost sheep back to the road.

He used to be a leader of Bōsōzoku at the age of puberty, eventually found his redemption via religious belief after the death of his group member in an accident. Now he works as a priest for a chapel in Sham Shui Po, a suburb in Hong Kong, to serve the community, and his hobby is to fix his motorcycle.
